Do any of these things sound familiar to you?? If you turn on your tv and watch the news at all Im sure they do...It seems that each and every day the news is full of all the crazy things that are going on in this world we live in.. sometimes it makes me so nervous I start feeling like its not even safe for me to let my kid go out to play, or go to school. I do not know what is going on in the world we live in but honestly something NEEDS to change!!! Most of the things happening are happening by know the people that should be old enough to know better!!! The people that are here to watch over their own kiddos and sometimes ours, to guide them and help them to turn into great adults.....but instead they are the ones killing their own child or someone elses...stealing them and holding them hostage for years, stealing them to do unspeakable acts and then killing them.....these are full grown adults that for whatever reasons find it their right to just do whatever they want to another person. This is NOT how it was meant to be!!! And because I see this night after night on the news it is starting to effect my dreams two nights now Ive had the craziest dreams of me trying to save people from the crazies in the world...I'm sorry but that's just not possible for me to do alone!!! But the thing is I wake from these dreams and I'm feeling so upset and sometimes even scared!!! It just has to stop!!! I get so upset seeing it on tv or hearing it on the radio or even reading about the bad in the there anything GOOD happening?????? Because honestly I could use some of that!!!! I know that when I get on a tangent about things like this I always hear the same response that's the media they report what people want to hear and people want to hear the bad.....really??? Is that true?? Am I the ONLY ONE that is so sick and tired of hearing the bad I REALLY REALLY want to hear some GOOD news for a change? Im beginning to think I need to stay away from the news for awhile because I cant keep having all that bad invade my dreams at night!!!!

Precisely why I don't keep up with the news a lot. I choose what to read online, but rarely watch a broadcast. I'm mentally healthier that way :0)

visiting you from SITS--have a great day!

I am not sure if these things are happening more often, or if we are just hearing more of the stories. Either way, you are right. It is extremely disturbing. I worry about my kids everyday in this world. It's a sad way to live.

Ah, those pesky dreams.

The nice thing is that they are just that....dreams. Your subconscious at work, based on what your brain digested recently. These true stories upset you consciously, and when you're asleep the brain takes over and turns your feelings into a nightly reality.

I would suggest that you not watch the news for a while, and see if that helps. Get your information from the net, and then only pick and choose the stories that seem uplifting. The GOOD stories.

Bad people will continue to do awful things. You can't stop it. But you can stop watching and reading about it.

On the net, clink the news links about positive stuff, and see how that helps you.

Sweet dreams!

I don't watch the news much anymore...I read it online...that way I control what I want to read about...once. Not like on TV where the newstations report on the same stuff over and over again. It does get to be too much.

Before going to bed, we turn on a comedy we like, laugh a little, then hit the lights. You might try that.

Yes, very very scary. I go through the same stuff every day when I think about my kids. They both go to school on their own, and although I know they have to do this at some point, it scares me to death.

I'll join you in saving the world!! I'm unemployed at the moment anyway!

I hear you, Dena! You've just listed all the reasons I don't watch the news. Besides it trying to scare the heck out of people, it's biased! No thanks...I'll stick with my touchy feel good movies!

BTW, I did your meme today ;)

I don't watch the news anymore for just this reason. Get a subscription to Newsweek and save yourself the stress...

And where is music 4 my Mondays? Hope all is right with your world :)
